Anna. June 2023

 After suffering intermittently from toothache for 2/3 weeks, it was finally decided to extract the tooth. Richard Bazlinton carried out the procedure which was done painlessly, and when the anaesthetic wore off later in the day my gum and jaw were slightly sore. A day later I have no discomfort whatsoever and certainly with great relief, no toothache. Thank you Richard and all the team at Market Place Dental.

 Great professional staff, who do an excellent job. Always informed as to what is happening and any questions answered in an understandable way.

 My family are always made to feel comfortable at Market Place by the reception staff, dental nurses and in particular Richard Bazlinton our dentist. This practice was recommended to us several years ago after I had had a very unfortunate experience with a dentist, resulting in me being hospitalised! Being now, as you can understand a very nervous patient, I can honestly say that if you are looking for somewhere that respects your feelings and wishes, whilst giving you expert advice and care you will have found the right place here. As a family we couldn't ask for more. 

Carol. June 2022

 Prompt. Helpful with questions. Very helpful addressing problems with flossing and gave alternatives and some samples to try. Clean and up to date. Professional.

Convenient parking is also a plus point!

 Such helpful, knowledgable service - I had Six Month Smile braces to straighten my wonky teeth and the whole process was so smooth and easy. I'm so glad I did it - I was always slightly bothered by my teeth when I smiled and now I don't have to think about it at all - so AMAZING!

 On arrival the professional but friendly, caring receptionist is welcoming and this results in a nice atmosphere in the waiting room. The Dentist’s professionalism together with his knowledgeable and caring approach is reassuring and makes what is, inevitably, a stressful experience into a calm one. The nurse, while less obvious, also contributes to a caring, calming atmosphere.
